children’s ministry

The Children’s Ministry program at Stewartville United Methodist Church

is a place for kids in Preschool through 4th grade to grow in their faith, 

make intergenerational connections, and experience God’s love through

crafts, stories, songs and games, learning about our faith has never been so much fun!

  • Sunday School

    Kid’s MIN is an energetic, fun-filled place!  Each week, kids age 3-10 explore their faith through Bible stories and verses, crafts and games, and interaction with caring adults and youth helpers.

  • Milestone Ministry

    Milestones are the significant and developmental markers that we experience throughout our lives.  They are our firsts.  There are first steps, first teeth and first words, but there are also firsts in our faith life:  baptism, beginning of Sunday School, receiving a Bible, and more.  The Stewartville UMC Milestone Ministry is committed to helping families build the connection between our daily lives and our faith life.  Milestone events are designed for the whole family, and include an informal lunch, meaningful lesson and keepsake craft project.
